Top Value Cabernet tasted 10/13

4. Santa Julia Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza (2012)

« Prev Next » 4 of 7
Average price: $9.98 from 2 stores
Sweet and spicy on the nose with lots of ripe and juicy currant, pomegranate and tangelo tinged fruit wrapped up in licorice, toasty oak and sage aromas. A little soft on entry, this shows that same attractive spicy fruit character in the mouth exhibiting fine freshness and attractive complexity. There fruit gains a black currant edge in the mouth and shows some slightly angular tannins that remain within balance. There’s a nice sweet/tart note to the fruit on the finish, which the woodiness of the tannins becomes a bit obvious. This certainly tastes and feels like it costs more than $10, but for my palate it comes off as just a tad sticky. 87pts
